On attached photo part of the group can be seen on board the SAR vessel of Bjargingafelags Nor­oya.

The group were take and showed the highest seacliff in the world 754 metres high, after the cruise we went back to Klaksvik and upon arrival we went to the chirch. The SAR team is now hosting a dinner at Vidareydi which is in 15 minutes drive from Klaksvik. Everyone is enjoying the hospitality.

More later

One report for the night (was sent last night)

The group has moved places and are now staying in two yachts which are laying in the harbour. The facilities are good and people are pleased with this change of accomodations. The picture is of one of the yacht and her name is "Nordlysid" and we believe it means Northern Light (Aurora Borealis)

Good night and more later.
